  • The fat Ronaldo had a few good years early in his career. Didnt have the strong mind of cr7 though

  • R9 lost his explosiveness from that long injury but what he had and achieved at that time was insane. Forget about world cup, he just want to comeback and play.. but to play in world cup, win it, and became top scorer of the tournament, that's beyond his dream especially after what happen in 1998.

    people would say he got fat and so on, that he should not play like that before injury because everyone wants to foul him badly but that's football at that time with so many good things in front but bad things behind. R9 in this era would be insane given the medical and sport science we have. I don't blame him if he party hard etc, that man earned and proved what he can do from 1998-2002. The rest was just a bonus for him.

  • R9 the greatest striker of all time and l think if it weren't for the injuries he could have ended at the #1 the best player ever. I still put him in my top 5 all time but just wish he had played longer 🐐👑🙏🏿🙏🏿♥️

  • I think in 1998 it was very politically and commercially needed that France win. So i think they tried to poison R9 in some way or another so that he would not play. That final was very weird.
    But for the player himself, despite having such injuries , playing at only 50 percent ofhis full capacities after his Milan injury,he still became the best player. Just imagine that he was at 100 percent all this time ….oye oye

  • ACL reconstruction surgery has gotten so much better now and you expect soccer players to come back from it routinely, but when Ronaldo had ACL surgery in the late 90's, it was still a 50/50 chance you could even come back as an athlete, let alone play at the same level ever again…. He beat so many odds to go down as one of the greatest strikers in the history despite all his injuries and weight problem. If he didn't have that first knee injury, who knows what could have happened!

  • great player best striker of all time, when the knee ligament, went to a hospital to be operated on and successfully managed And after the surgery he recovered well, thanks to the hospital, but when the world cup was in Brazil well 2014, the Brazilian people protested against the cup in Brazil, that it would be better to invest money in hospitals, but Ronaldo say hospitals It's not that important, but when he needed it he went to the hospital, Brazil was broken and he only cared about himself fuk you Ronaldo

  • I love Ronaldo, the true one. In my opinion this is the best player ever. No one like him, No Pelé, no Maradona, no Messi, no one! He had everything, right shoot , left shoot, head, dribling, speed, everything. Simply the best!

  • All Hail to R9 Ronaldo Nazario El Fenomenò

    Sean Omari February 19, 2020 11:28 pm Reply
  • Well I haven’t seen Maradona.But for me Ronaldo is the best footaballer I have ever seen. That too keeping in minds players like Messi, Ronaldinho, Zidane, Figo and Cristiano.Messi is super efficient. He comes second to my list. But what he lacks is elegance.Then comes Zidane, then Ronaldinho, then Figo and Cristiano. Ronaldo was a generetion idol. His skill sets with such an elegance was anything I have ever seen.

  • Everyone who´s saying: "But C.Ronaldo and Messi makes every Season 30-40 Goals and 10-20 Assists, thats why they are the best of all time."

    1. Pre-Injury El Fenomeno was without doubt the best of all time… Or let me say it this way… Ronaldo got his Injury with 22-23… At that Age, C.Ronaldo and Messi wasnt better than he was.

    2. El Fenomeno had everything a Footballer need…
    Speed with and without Ball like Mbappe
    Technic nearly like Ronaldinho… That you dont make Circus Tricks all the time dont mean that you cant… But a big difference… I can remember El Fenomeno who done the Elastico while running.
    Strength, Jumping and so on like C.Ronaldo.
    Dribbling, Agility, Balance nearly like Messi.

    Shoot Power nearly like R.Carlos.

    If you want proof take this…

    El Fenomeno 18yrs old. Absolute Key Player Eredivise 33 Goals in 35 Games (3090 Minutes). Assists are missing. Its too long ago.
    C. Ronaldo 18-19yrs old (7 Months older than El Fenomeno) A better Substitute Premier League. 6 Goals 9 Assists in 40 Games (2355 Minutes.)
    Messi 18yrs old. Substitute La Liga. 8 Goals 4 Assists in 25 Games (1414 Minutes)

    El Fenomeno 20yrs old. Absolute Key Player La Liga. 47 Goals, 7 Assists in 49 Games (4246 Minutes). And it seems like that more than 10 Assists are missing in the Database.
    C.Ronaldo 20-21yrs old. First 11 Player Premier League. 12 Goals 9 Assists in 47 Games (3413 Minutes)
    Messi 20yrs old. First 11 Player La Liga. 16 Goals 15 Assists in 40 Games (2954 Minutes).

    El Fenomeno 21yrs old. Absolute Key Player Serie A. 34 Goals in 47 Games (4142 Minutes). All Assists missing this time.
    C.Ronaldo 21-22yrs old. Absolute Key Player Premier League. 23 Goals 21 Assists in 53 Games (4386 Minutes).
    Messi 21yrs old. Absolute Key Player La Liga. 38 Goals, 18 Assists in 51 Games (3890 Minutes).

    C.Ronaldo and Messi started to be so good as El Fenomeno when they was 21yrs old. I the meantime El Fenomeno dominated 3 yrs the World Football. And the World Cup 1998 while he was 21yrs old.

    El Fenomeno Goal Ratio (Assists i dont know. Cant find it)National Team: 0,63
    C.Ronaldo Goal Ratio National Team: 0,60
    Messi Goal Ratio National Team: 0,51

    Dont forget that El Fenomeno after his Injury wasnt the same Player he was before… Never again… Between 99-2002 (3 1/2 years) if i remember correctly, he played only 25-30 matches, was nearly 2 1/2 years injured… And it wasnt clear, if he could make a comeback ever again.

    Still with 26 La Liga Real Madrid… League, CL and so on… 30 Goals 8 Assists in 44 Games (3354 Minutes)
    27 Real Madrid 31 Goals, 12 Assists in 48 Games (3943 Minutes)
    28 Real Madrid 24 Goals 11 Assists in 45 Games (3653 Minutes)
    29 Real Madrid 15 Goals 3 Assists in 27 Games (2102 Minutes)
    And so on…

    His Body was ruined, thyroid illness and so on…..

    And now try to figure out a not heavy injured El Fenomeno, in your mind…….
